Fresh Nashville Sound From Haywire Custom Shop Bench
Two Questions We Get A Lot Of In The Haywire Custom Shop……….
Q-Can you make a tele guitar sound as flexible as a strat?
A- Yes, we can make a guitar play however player wants it to play, feel, respond and sound. If they can verbalize the vision, action, timbre, features then we can do it.
This is a question that comes up a lot. We are a custom guitar shop, and what that means is this: We will build you a guitar that combines all of your favorite elements of all your favorite guitars into one instrument. It will have the sound YOU like.
Action Speaks Louder Than Words
A guitar is only as beautiful as the last action…..setup that was really great. Guitar action is very important.
The guitar will sound like what you want it to sound like. You are the designer and we are the builder. There are differences in custom shops for costs as well as choices. For example;
We use everyone’s parts-they only use theirs. If you consider the Fender custom shop for example, when deciding to have a new guitar built some things to bear in mind are: Fender uses Fender parts. If you want EMG, Lollar, DiMarzio, Fralin, Bareknuckle, Nicholas Cardillo, Rio Grande, SRV pickups to name a few it most likely won’t happen.
They have an agenda which includes using and promoting their own brand and understandably so. They are not going to add other companies products unless they are paid handsomely either by you or someone else but in reality they will most likely not do it. You won’t necessarily get what you want. The prices in their Custom shop are on average about 4 times higher than the most custom shops for about the same quality.
In our shop we do what you want, use the parts you request, add the pickups for the sound you need and add features that you’ll love on a gig. So….back to the original subject-What do Haywire guitars sound like? Check the website when you can and look at the individual guitar product pages and you’ll see some videos that demonstrate what Haywire guitars sound like with different pickups, features, push-pull options, pickup selections and more. The pickups we use are only limited by your imagination because we’ll use whatever you like and make sensible realistic cost effective suggestions to assist your decisions about what pickups will do the job you need done. That is the big difference between us and the more expense less responsive guys.
To answer the question–“They sound like anything you’d like them to sound like”.
